There's good news at UW Alumni Tours! Bookings have rebounded since we confirmed our 2010 tour schedule last spring. As a result, we've added a few new trips to our roster: China, India, an Alaska Adventures cruise and Scandinavian Odyssey. Additionally, we're working hard to confirm both a trip to Bhutan and a Mediterranean and Greek Isles cruise with Oceania, both for the fall. Stay tuned!
We've got fabulous trips throughout 2010. Hope to have you traveling with us soon!
